I enjoy the raffles. It's amazing that they can give away so much money, gift cards, scratchers, stamps and post cards in one place. I always learn something new at each convention. Last year it was facebook, twitter and blogs. I'm using facebook a lot. OLS has a lot of facebook to enter.

I have attended on convention and would like to attend another one to meet up with our wonderful OLS members and to learn more sweeping tips.

Thanks for the contest.

I would like to attend the sweepstakes convention because my sister in laws and some members of my sweeps club said it brought them closer together, and they met so many people from all walks of life, and were inspired. Some of them are also going this year, and unfortunately I missed out sadly.

I hope to get advice on sweeping, right now I've been sweeping for a year and haven't won anything major, and sometimes that makes me want to give up, until I read the wins from here and suddenly I'm inspired once again.

I enjoy the different forums and reading about the wins, and would love to meet up with people from here in person. Thank you

I would love to go to the convention. I have never been to one before and I would hope that in going it would please the sweeps god and then they would then let me win a prize that is valued over $100 as I have never had that happen either. Thanks!!!!

It would be wonderful to go to the convention! I would love to meet other sweepers such as myself and hopefully learn what others use for methods in organizing and entering. Plus, I would love to meet Brent! It would be an honor to be able to thank him (and the mods!) in person for developing and maintaining this awesome site!

Thanks for holding such a great sweeps!

Love sweep conventions as it is nice to be around others who share your interest in this great hobby. I always learn from listening to others tell about there entering strategies.

I had planned on attending this years convention as I have never been to one and would love to gain the valuable information that I am sure it has to offer as well as meet other sweepers and possibly bring home some wins. However, my husband lost his job and as a mother of 6 (ages 17, 10, 3, 3, 1, and 8 months), it was a must to cut expenses/costs as I work full time from home and have just recently started another business in January that I had to cut out the convention trip. I would love to win this trip to the convention so I can reinstate it in my summer plans! WooHoo c'mon, let the cards fall in my lap!!!!!!

I have recently retired, so now I actually have the Time to attend the convention to learn tips and tricks for sweeping. As a plus I would also be able to meet Brent and give him a high five for all the work he does. Thanks for the contest.

I would love to learn how people deal with sweepers burnout. I stepped away and now I am finding hard to get back in the game.

I loved meeting all of my fellow OLS'ers at the SA convention. Lots of good friends made and would love to see everyone again.

Thanks for the chance!

I would love to win because I have never been to a convention. I have also never been north of Missouri. I would love to meet some OLSers, too!

Hoot Hoot ... OLS is awesome!! Thanks for offering this great prize!!

I'd love to go to this year's convention .... have not been able to attend for several years due to employment situation. I want to go to get motivated and to learn about all the new type of sweeping opportunities. Last convention I was able to attend was Phoenix.

Denice . . . . Sailing into the wins . . .

I want to see what everyone looks like! I hope to learn what a jello shot is.

I've never attended and would like to invite a local OLSer (near Ft Wayne, IN) to join me in my win.

Thanks for the MOC and hope to see you guys at convention.

Wishing & hoping & thinking & praying, planning & dreaming... and entering!

I would love to attend the convention. I have so enjoyed reading about past conventions and would love to meet my fellow OLSers and make some new friends.

There is so much to learn, it's hard to pinpoint exactly what I hope to get out of it, but I think the most important thing I would like to learn is the social networking sweeps. I have stayed away from them thus far and would like to know more about them.

Thank you. I hope to win so I can meet you all and spend some time getting to know you.
